Public relations is one of the most powerful marketing strategies you can use in your business, in part because it is free, but more importantly because it gives you third party endorsement from the media, such as magazines, newspapers and radio shows. My guest this episode is Jill Lublin, an international speaker on the topics of influence marketing, publicity and networking. She is the author of three best selling books including Get Noticed…Get Referrals (McGraw Hill) and co-author of Guerrilla Publicity (Adams Media).
When you are both consistent and persistent with your visibility in the media, social media and beyond, says Jill, “you become a trusted source, you become the top name in your industry, and publicity is one of the best strategies to drive prospects to your door.” Publicity gives you name familiarity and recognition, which translates into more clients and greater stability and income in your business.
